Is Chad from The Bachelorette a Serial Killer? My Pick to Win!

Chad from The Bachelorette is Scary!

Okay I’m a really good mom. I don’t let my kids watch crap on TV. They’re 12 and 14. Their brains are still forming.

I don’t want to f##k up their amygdala and their pre-frontal cortexes with any Real Housewives or, God forbid, reruns of The Brady Bunch on Nick at Night (I watch those alone at 3 a.m. with a keg of Haagen Daz.)

I’ll let them watch anything from Wes Anderson (think The Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, The Royal Tenenbaums):

SNL specifically for Kate McKinnon:

Anything starring Melissa McCarthy.

So imagine my horror when a friend came to visit, forced us at gunpoint to watch the season premiere of The Bachelorette and we all became addicted.

When Chad threatened to beat up Alex we decided he might erupt into ‘Roid Rage at any moment.

Keep your tongue to yourself, Chad!!

You just know this guy is juicing!

He probably hangs out with the douche-tastic Lance Armstrong excoriating all men who are pussies and women who are “Naggy.”

As the rose ceremony approached on episode two my daughters and I were outraged and transfixed by Chad’s inappropriate stalkage of bachelorette JoJo.

How dare he cut in on her private conversations with poor erectile dysfunction salesman Evan? (Who Chad definitely thinks is a pussy, maybe it’s because Chad needs something like https://www.vigrxplus.com/male-enhancement-pills/ himself!) and find dark alcoves to pull JoJo into and kiss her (you just know Chad’s not kissing with a closed mouth!)


Evan, just punch Chad in the nose and run as fast as you can!

And the constant meat eating! He ate more meat on episode two than an African jackal on the Savannah!

And who does shirtless pull-ups with their suitcase clamped between their inner thighs? Satan???

So imagine the suspense as sweet, perky JoJo gave away rose after rose to everyone except Chad.

My daughters and I had sweaty hands as we waited to see whom JoJo would give the last rose.

A thrilling fear and revulsion coursed through our veins as Chad ate cold baloney with his sharp predator teeth whilst skewering JoJo with a ravenous glare.

Run JoJo, ruuuuunnnnnn. Remember, men who’re on steroids have very small penises!

(Get thee back, Satan!)

Finally JoJo had just one last rose to bequeath. A collective hush fell over our living room, the three of us glancing at one another in shared, horrified anticipation.

Then JoJo did the unthinkable. She gave the last rose away to Chad!!

A keening wail arose in my living room as my daughters and I shrieked, “No Jojo, not Chhhhaaaaaaaddddddd!”

We were united in our loathing and I fully suspect this will be one of our greatest bonding moments during their teen-dom.

So thank you Chad. Normally my daughters prefer to bond with their friends, but we’ve become united against a common enemy!

These are the bachelors JoJo should pick.


#4 choice Alex. Good things come in tiny packages!

James Taylor

#3 James Taylor. He writes poetry and bears a striking resemblance to Benedict Cumberbatch.


#2 Wells. Anyone who almost barfs running a fireman relay race warms the cockles of my heart.

Derek again

And the Winner should be: Derek! That smile, those eyes. Need I say more?
